I also have a lot of social anxiety issues!! I even let did homeschooling back in highschool for a couple of years because of it! But with a lot of work I was able to go back and actually graduated early went to college and got my BA! It's a lot of work but I think what helped me the most was educating myself, CBT therapy,medication at times and most of all realizing that I was not alone and many people struggle with the same issues! I also dont have many friends but the few I do have and my family I wouldnt trade for the world and that whats important! Stay positive!!!
